E-mail Distribution Lists

Career Services maintains 20+ e-mail distribution lists for Penn graduate students, graduate alumni and current postdocs. We send out relevant job postings (both within and outside of academia), program and workshop announcements, and funding opportunities. Please consult the section related to your academic program below for information about how to sign up for these distribution lists.

SEAS Master's Students

Annenberg, Arts & Sciences, Design, Medicine, SEAS PhDs, and Wharton PhDs
Graduate School of Education, School of Social Policy and Practice, and School of Nursing


FOR SCHOOL OF ENGINEERING AND APPLIED SCIENCE MASTER'S STUDENTS

Master's students in the School of Engineering are automatically added to a dedicated listserv. If you are in a Master's program in SEAS and are not receiving our e-mails, please contact Kaitlyn Barlow.

The SEAS advising team also distributes industry-specific newsletters and other information to Master's students via CareerMail lists on Handshake. Find out how to sign up for CareerMail here.


FOR ANNENBERG, ARTS & SCIENCES, DESIGN, MEDICINE, SEAS PHDS, AND WHARTON PHDS

Listservs formerly used for these populations are now inactive and all communications are distributed via Handshake CareerMail. Find out how to sign up for CareerMail here.


FOR THE GRADUATE SCHOOL OF EDUCATION, THE SCHOOL OF SOCIAL POLICY & PRACTICE, AND THE SCHOOL OF NURSING

Communications for these populations are primarily distributed through our listservs. Follow the instructions below to subsribe, digest, and unsubscribe for these listservs.

Email forwarding causes problems with unsubscribing from the e-mail distribution lists and viewing digest messages. For this reason we strongly advise those interested in subscribing to not use an email address that is being forwarded to another account. Instead, it is best to subscribe directly with the email address that you are forwarding to and will be receiving the emails, such as an address from a Gmail, Yahoo, or Hotmail account.

Please note: if you add your name to multiple lists, you may receive duplicate messages.

      DIGESTING MESSAGES

      Digesting messages allows you to receive one daily message that contains all the individual emails sent to a particular list in a 24-hour period. Digesting will limit the number of messages you receive in a day, but it also means that you will not receive immediate postings and announcements as they are sent out by Career Services. For example, if there was a last-minute room change for a program or workshop that was sent to the listserv, you might not receive the notice until later in the day. To adjust your settings to "digest," send a message to LISTSERV@LISTS.UPENN.EDU with nothing in the subject line and only the following text in the body of the email: SET (INSERT ABBREVIATED LISTSERV NAME HERE) DIGEST HTML. There should be no punctuation. Abbreviated listserv names can be found above, before each list's description. Example: To digest the messages you receive from the Design list, your message should read, SET GRADDESIGN DIGEST HTML; for Life Sciences, SET GRADLIFESCIA DIGEST HTML; etc. You will need to send this message from the email used to subscribe you to the list.

      UNSUBSCRIBING FROM A LIST

      To unsubscribe, send a message to LISTSERV@LISTS.UPENN.EDU with "SIGNOFF (ABBREVIATED NAME OF LIST)" in both the subject line and body of the email.  The listserv's abbreviated name, which you need to unsubscribe, can be found within parentheses above, before each list's description. For example, if you are on the Physical Science list, the subject line and message would be SIGNOFF GRADPHYSCIB. For Public Policy, SIGNOFF PUBLICPOLICY, for Business SIGNOFF GRADBUSINESS, etc.

      You should receive an automatic confirmation that you've unsubscribed.  If you have any questions, or if any of the commands you send fail, please contact the grad student team at 215-898-7530.
